This update for python fixes the following issues:

  • Add patch Always-treat-SSLError-timeouts-as-socket-timeouts-24. (bsc#1115904)
  • Add fdupes to specfile
  • Sending empty messages no longer hangs. Instead an empty message is sent correctly. (bsc#1123054)
  • Fixed compatibility issues in UTF-8 encoding behavior between Py2/Py3
  • Fix implicit conversion from bytes to string on the connection object. (Issue #155) This issue has caused Celery to crash on connection to RabbitMQ.
  • Fix random delays in task execution. This is a bug that caused performance issues due to polling timeouts that occur when receiving incomplete AMQP frames.
  • Calling "conn.collect()" multiple times will no longer raise an "AttributeError" when no channels exist.
  • Fix compatibility code for Python 2.7.6.
  • When running in Windows, py-amqp will no longer use the unsupported TCP option TCP_MAXSEG.
  • Added support for setting the SNI hostname header. The SSL protocol version is now set to SSLv23
  • Authentication mechanisms were refactored to be more modular. GSSAPI authentication is now supported.
  • Do not reconnect on collect.

  • RabbitMQ: Ensured safer encoding of queue arguments.
  • Added fallback to :func:``uuid.uuid5`` in :func:``generate_oid`` if
  • Added Python 3.6 to CI testing
  • Fixed bug around modifying dictionary size while iterating over it
